My favorite house in Green Lake. It's beautiful all year long.

The first day of Spring in Seattle was very windy and cold. Green Lake was much choppier than usual. It's warmed up a bit since then, but the weather is still unpredictable. We've had a couple days where the temperature was in the upper 60s, but then we also had a day where we got an inch of hail!

Moss and lichen are happy here, all year long.

The weather might be getting warmer and fairer, but that doesn't mean it doesn't rain! It just means it's more enjoyable :)

Forget-Me-Nots are quite possibly my favorite flower.

Well, that's Spring in Seattle. It's a pretty happy season and so full of color! Just when you start getting sad that the cherry blossoms are done, the apple trees burst into bloom. Never a flowerless moment!

Seattle is so beautiful at all times of the year in my opinion. :) You're lucky to live in such a green state. I don't know if you saw my post on Twitter but we're going to be moving to Portland in July!! So I definitely want to meet you sometime! :) <3

Oh how I MISS the NW! I used to live in Portland, OR before I moved over here- and my childhood was spent in parts of NW Washington (Seattle, Tacoma) and then in Yakima. I miss the greenery of the spring...we have some here...but not of such vastness or variety! thanks for sharing! XO!
